NBC Renews ‘Blindspot’ For Season 4. Picks Up Josh Dallas Drama ‘Manifest’
‘Blindspot’ stars Jaimie Alexander as “Jane Doe”, a woman who was mysteriously found naked in a duffle bag in the Time Square, with no memory of who she is or how she got there. She is, however, covered in tattoos, with one prominent name in the middle of her back – FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton).
The show doesn’t have the best ratings in the US, however, it does seem to have a dedicated enough fan base and consistent numbers for the network to renew it once again. The series airs on Sky Living in the UK.
The new show, ‘Manifest’, follows the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828. Whilst it wasn’t the smoothest of flights, everyone lands happily without incident. Given that would make a very boring tv series, there is obviously something else going on. When the passengers and crew disembark, they discover, what has only been a few hours for them in the air, has been 5 years for the people on the ground. Friends, families and colleagues all believe the plane went down after it disappeared from radar, and have grieved and moved on. As their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
The show stars Josh Dallas (‘Once Upon A Time’), Melissa Roxburgh (‘Valor’, ‘Star Trek Beyond’), Athena Karkanis (‘Zoo’, ‘Suits’), J.R. Ramirez (‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Arrow’), Luna Blaise (‘Fresh Off the Boat’), Parveen Kaur (‘Beyond’, ‘Saving Hope’) and Jack Messina. The series is created by Jeff Rake (‘The Mysteries of Laura’, ‘The Tomorrow People’) who also exec produces with Hollywood director Robert Zemeckis.
‘Blindspot’ is currently airing on Sky Living in the UK. Still too early for a UK pick up on ‘Manifest’, but we’ll let you know when we hear more.
